NUS Cultural Day 2019

Confident of its intellectual and academic capacity, and intent on better serving the best interest of Samoa and its stakeholders, and meeting the demands of the knowledge economy, the NUS has established its online Research and Publications portal.

The official launch of the web portal was held on Thursday, the 13th of December 2018, at 6 o’clock in the evening at the NUS Gymnasium.

 

What benefits society in a more immediate and tangible manner, this is now the NUS research focus. Engagement, relevance, innovation, and impact will define the NUS research function for the next five years.

Our overarching research themes are economic development, environment protection and sustainability, a healthy Samoa, and the promise and caution of the information age. These themes are interrelated and mutually enriching, converging at a single point: Development. There is thus a conscious alignment of the NUS research mission with the Development Strategies being pursued by the Government of Samoa.

Relative to those themes and targeting our Development needs, our strategic research priorities over the next five years are: (1) TVET and the provision of industry knowledge and skills relevant to the work market. (2) Environment protection and sustainability in the face of climate change. (3) The health and well-being of all Samoans. (4) Information technology (IT) for professional and business development. Without abdicating our requisite intellectual engagement with pure theory, as well as the ongoing necessary quest for new ones, it is timely nevertheless to attend more vigorously to the applied dimension of research and, merging theory and practice, find practical solutions that work on the ground.

The NUS Vice Chancellor and President, Professor Fui Le’apai Tu’ua Ilaoa Asofou So’o, appropriately underlines the fundamental importance of the research function of the NUS, as in all other universities: `Research is at the centre of our University’s forward strategy.’ The online Research & Publications portal takes that vision forward.

The portal contains important information on the NUS’s Research & Publications portfolio, such as information on its governing Committee (UREC) acting subject to the jurisdiction of the NUS Council, the NUS Research Plan 2018-2023, Research and Publication Policies, application for funding procedures, an Ethics Approval Guideline, a record of Research Outputs, and a Directory of Expertise of NUS academic staff and researchers.
